The National Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (NCCIM),Dewan Perniagaan dan Perindustrian Kebangsaan Malaysia, is the umbrella platform comprising of five principal Malaysian private sector organizations concerned with commerce and industry.
NCCIM traces its origin back to 1962, where by virtue of a cabinet decision gave rise to the need for its establishment, when four principal Chambers of Commerce united to form the United Chambers of Commerce of Malaysia. It was restructured in 1974 to include the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers and was renamed the National Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia.
Today, the 5 principal members/constituent chambers are:
- Dewan Perniagaan Melayu Malaysia (DPMM)/Malay Chamber of Commerce Malaysia
- The Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (ACCCIM)
- Malaysian Associated Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (MAICCI)
- Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MICCI)
- Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM)
As a non-profit non-governmental organization (NGO), NCCIM’s role is to help represent the interests of the Malaysian business community on the domestic and international fronts. A key objective is to promote Malaysian exports and investments abroad, as well as to help create a conducive climate in Malaysia for foreign investors; including to complement the efforts and intiatiives of the Government to attract foreign investment.
